Event Description

Compliance – How to Know What to Do and Where to Begin

William S. Manne, Partner, Miller Nash Graham & Dunn LLP

Larissa Budzik, JD, CHC, Hospital Compliance Program Manager, Kaiser Permanente
Owen Gibson, Corporate Compliance Officer, Albertina Kerr
Karen L. Rasmussen, CPA, CHC, Managing Director, The Rasmussen Group LLC

Join our panel of experienced nonprofit compliance officers, who will discuss how to establish and promote a compliance agenda for your organization. Although larger nonprofits typically have a compliance officer on staff, smaller nonprofits may have limited resources to adequately address risks. Without a full-time, identified compliance officer, they may not have centralized or organized the function to address key compliance issues. This panel will provide tips on how to begin centralizing and addressing compliance issues in your nonprofit.
